BENGALURU: A 31-year-old woman and her paramour were arrested by the J.P. Nagar police for allegedly stealing Rs 1.3 crore in cash from her house. Police have recovered Rs 1.06 crore in cash from the accused. The accused have been identified as Shruthi, wife of A Ramachandra, who runs a fabrication unit and a resident of J.P. Nagar second phase, and Kumar alias Kumar Gowda, 30, a resident of T Dasarahalli and a small time realtor.
Police said that Ramachandra filed a complaint on Monday stating that his relative C. Muniraju, a realtor, used to keep cash in his house and there was Rs 1.3 crore in the house. When his family members had gone out of station last week, some miscreants entered the house and had decamped with the cash. The police took up the probe and when they inspected the house, it was found that the jewellery in the house were intact and only the cash had gone missing.
“This led to the suspicion that some family member was involved in the incident. The complainant was questioned first but he had no idea about who took away the cash. When his wife Shruthi was grilled, she confessed that she had asked her friend to commit the theft. She revealed that her son, who studies in a school in Chikkamagaluru, had come home for Dasara vacations and on the pretext of dropping him back, she had convinced her husband to go on a trip of Dharmasthala and other places. Before leaving, she had told her friend Kumar where the cash was kept and when they were leaving and returning. She had also given a duplicate key of the house to him before leaving,” the police said.
“The family left on Friday and returned on Sunday. On Saturday night, Kumar gained entry into the house and had escaped with the cash. He had thrown the clothes out of the almirah. Based on her information, Kumar was arrested '1.06 crore in cash was recovered from him. A Lancer car used to commit the crime, and the duplicate key, screw driver and other things were seized,” the police said.
